In Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodites, morphogenesis of the vulva culminates in a process called vulval eversion, whereby a passageway is made from the uterus through the vulva to the outside of the animal. We have screened for mutations causing abnormal eversion of the vulva (evl mutations) to identify new genes involved in vulval development, and found… CONTINUE READING
